A salon for very (insert color) hair?

platinum blond hairDebbie asks via Twitter:

I'm new to the area and need a salon that does awesome platinum blonde. I'm nervous. Help?

Understandably nervous -- taking a hair color to one extreme or the other can go... very wrong.

So, got a suggestion for Debbie? Maybe any local salon experiences involving extreme hair color -- whether it's platinum blond or Run Lola Run red or whatever. Please share!

Salon 109 - I use Mary. Specifically in the past I've had strips of platinum blonde with black as well, now we're trying to go back to an ash blonde overall. She knows her color and specifically her products. I can't talk her talk but she's obviously extremely knowledgable.

One of my favorite services to do.
Please come see me at V Salon...

Kelsey Jorgenson at Shelley Salon in East Greenbush is awesome. She is the only person ever to color my hair. If you're super nervous, maybe start with Shelley, the owner. She's an expert.

Debbie, Go straight to Cory at Ando Salon in Troy. He took me from very light blonde to red and back again and my hair stayed healthy and shiny all through out. I've been going to him for 3 years now and I honestly will never ever let anyone cut or color my hair ever again. 518-271-0183

I can direct you to the right person. I work as a professional model, from Los Angeles to Copenhagen, and every hair stylist who has put their hands in my hair for the last two years has been BLOWN AWAY by my blonde and how long and healthy it is. Every single one of them. Christopher from Christopher Brian Salon in Cohoes is my secret. He's also a really amazing person and has become a great friend over the last two years. Here's a link to one of my recent magazine covers, see the color for yourself, that's all my real hair: https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc6/250957_501785829837873_952332463_n.jpg

Townsend Salon on the corner of S. Swan and Madison! They're awesome! Ania Salon on Western isn't bad either (but a little pricey, Townsend's a little more reasonable, for hair color especially.)

Thank you so much! I really appreciate all of the great suggestions!


Brianna at STRUT! 458-8788 Trust me..... she does wonders for your hair.

Heather, the owner of Executive Cuts in Latham is incredible with color. She's been doing mine for over two years now and I won't go anywhere else. She's the best.
